An Artist by Accident

I am a speaker, artist, healing art practitioner, and advocator for road safety and burn trauma. I am originally from Greece, and since 2016, I have been travelling between Greece and Canada, where I happily live with my husband, Dan Plexman. ā€‹ 

A little about the past that allowed me to discover my purpose.

I started my entrepreneurial journey at 19, running my first baking business that soon blossomed into another shop, promising me a prosperous and secure future. 

In 2001, I watched my life change in one split second. I was involved in a horrific car accident where I lost two friends. My body suffered 74% of 3rd and 4th-degree burns, and I came close to losing my life. Everything changed, and reality hit me hard. Not only I lost my friends, but I also lost my identity. Fragments of my old self while looking in the mirror shattered me. ā€‹ 

During the long road to recovery and to strengthen my injured hands, I was introduced to painting and other forms of art. My health challenges, including cancer at the age of 27, made me realize that life is fragile and precious. I found the painting process to be a form of mental and emotional therapy.

I use art as a form of expression. Art has served me as a language beyond speech and has enabled internal transformation. This feeling sparked the desire to develop my skills further. Today I am a proud member of the Greek Artists Association and grateful for having my art displayed in numerous exhibitions in Europe and Canada. It is truly fulfilling. But this was not the end. Since I experienced the emotional healing power of art, I decided to become a certified Healing Art practitioner. I am passionate about helping people explore their emotions, connect with themselves, and experience a sense of inner piece by unlocking their creativity. 

I am excited to share with you my collection of mind-your-mind coloring postcards.
